Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley has been mentioned as a possible candidate for an NFL job, with the Cleveland Browns being named as a potential destination.
Riley, though, doesn't appear to be interested in leaving Oklahoma anytime soon.
The Sooners' head coach said following his team's loss to No. 1 Alabama that he doesn't view the NFL as a "step up."
"I don’t see that as a step up, not in this profession. It’s not a burning desire of mine by any stretch right now. Not even close. It doesn’t even compare to my burning desire to win a national championship here," Riley told reporters.
Riley, 35, is in his second season as Oklahoma's head coach.
The Sooners have gone 24-4 in Riley's two seasons as head coach, making the College Football Playoff both years.
Oklahoma will likely be a championship contender in the Big 12 again next season, though the Sooners will need to replace Kyler Murray.
Georgia five-star freshman quarterback Justin Fields is reportedly considering Oklahoma as a transfer option.
